Batman might’ve banned Robin from re-entering No Man’s Land… buuuuuut, he didn’t say anything about Young Justice! LOOPHOLE! Today we’re hangin’ out with the Jr. JLA as they beat up a sub and salad, and Kon-El gets aroused a bunch. It’s a bit of a sticky wicket… you’ll almost think I’m making it up as I go!

Plus: A wonderful NMaiLbag!

The Bada-Bin!

One thought on “NML Crossing, Episode 072 – Young Justice Special #1 (1999)

  • This was a silly fun issue. No Man’s Land has seemed so serious so far. This was just the complete opposite of that. The boys weren’t there to save Gotham they were just doing something that they were told to not do. Seems like standard operating procedure for every youngster that ever youngstered. Some fun comic relief.

    I always loved the Beast when he was on the Avengers and the Defenders. I really hoped that at some point it was going to be revealed that he was replaced by Age of Apocalypse Dark Beast and the real Hank was locked away in the Krakoa prison pit. Marvel seems to have a habbit of ruining characters named “Hank”.

    The Dark Knight was a product of its time. It reads differently without the cultural context of the Reagan Era. It is a good snapshot of that cultural shift but it is given far too much importance in the Batman mythos. To this day I maintain that Jason Todd would have survived the phone death poll if it hadn’t been said in DKR that Jason had died. Year One is by far Miller’s better Batman work because year one is evergreen. It doesn’t need an understanding if the cultural zeitgeist to be enjoyed.
